  1. Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin’ by Albert King
    There’s a horrible version of this in the Bill Murray train wreck A Very Murray Christmas but this has it all - sleigh bells, a great laid back guitar solo and some low key festive filth
  1. Under The Mistletoe by Masked Intruder
    Outstanding 60s style harmonies and joyous pop from the uhh…breaking and entering themed punk band (I promise this is good and worth a listen!)
  1. Merry Christmas I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight by the Ramones

4 All I Want For Christmas Is You but the My Chemical Romance version (the original also SLAPS)

  1. Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
    I love this era of kitschy Christmas songs with sort of creepy sexy undertones and this is the best of those.

@dktrfaustus you know what, Saviours Day might be better than Mistletoe and Wine

  1. Slade. Absolutely reeks of shit British Christmas, it’s almost too perfect.
  2. In the bleak midwinter. Fuck you I’m having a carol.
  3. Pogues. Obvious, but ah it is great though
  4. It was on a starry night. Another carol, sorry. A modern one too, ugh.
  5. Chris Rea. Makes me think of Bob Mortimer, which is always a nice thing

Wonderful Christmas time - Paul McCartney DO NOT AT ME.

Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses - BANGER

Stop the Cavalry - Jona Lewie - BANGER

Mistletoe and Wine - Cliff Richard - YAAAAASSSS

Making your mind up - Bucks Fizz - Debatable if it’s a Christmas song, but their name is Bucks Fizz so you’ve got to play it when you’re drinking a Buck’s Fizz. MANDATORY. WOOO SKIRTS OFF!

Calypso Carol #2, think the ddue who wrote it lived in Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells.
